Eric the postman is slipping through his own fingers... His chaotic family, his wild stepsons, and the cement mixer in the front garden don't help, but it is Eric's own secret that drives him to the brink. Can he face Lily, the woman he once loved? Despite outrageous efforts and misplaced goodwill from his football fan mates, Eric continues to sink. In desperate times it takes a spliff and a special friend to challenge Eric to journey into the most perilous territory of all - the past. As a certain Frenchman says, "he who is afraid to throw the dice, will never throw a six."

Ken Loach directs this upbeat comedy set in Manchester, about a football-mad postman who receives life coaching from his idol, the enigmatic French footballing legend, Eric Cantona. On a downward spiral and facing an uncertain future, postman Eric Bishop (Steve Evets) is looking for a way out of his torment. Stealing a joint from his teenage son, he takes a drag and starts recounting his woes to a poster of the Gallic legend in his bedroom. As if by magic (or a puff of smoke!), the famously philosophical one miraculously appears, spouting forth his wisdom to his number one fan, who he then proceeds to take on a journey of blissful self-discovery.
